Couldn't find a thread, so I figured I'd start one.

Who else likes this weird and funky guitarist?

Just bought the Metal Kartoon album. And I love it

I love this style together with Mattias "IA" Eklundh and Bumblefoots style.

My own style might be more rocky, and not so jazzy, but doesn't stop me from enjoying this awesome music

I've only seen him on youtube, but he's a very interesting player. I'd like to learn some of his techniques, but I never even thought to check if he had an album 'cause I didn't think he was that well-known, signed, etc.

What are his releases like, then?


Great guitar, he has, too.

And you're obviously here because you fancy Phill.
Phill is a very attractive guy...

"I'm so tempted to sig that, Phill" - Sig it then

Unless otherwise stated, assume everything I say is in my opinion.

Check out his myspace page http://www.myspace.com/christophegodin, it has some great tracks / videos on (I personally like 'Dance of the Fat Boy' the best. He has several albums out, I think you can check his own website out for details on these / where to buy etc....yes, you are right he does have cool guitars!

Vigier UK is really excited about presenting these clinics - we have noticed there are less and less in-store clinics available to the public and we aim to change this trend by promoting exciting artists such as Christophe Godin. Christophe has proved a major success and been well received wherever he has performed.

His ability to connect with audiences and colourful sense of humour coupled with his awesome musicianship are the right ingredients for some entertaining and thrilling clinics.

Awesome, I like this guy a lot. Also seems very funny and friendly.
A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died. Hakuin answered 'How am I supposed to know?'
'How do you not know? You're a Zen master!' exclaimed the samurai.
'Yes, but not a dead one,' Hakuin answered.

I have a guitar duet album between he and Pierrejean Gaucher. They do some cool jams and a few Zappa covers. Then I have the Mörglbl album Jazz for the Deaf as well which is pretty good.

I love his stuff with Morglbl, too bad the last time they tried to come to the USA they had a problem with their visas.
